Happy World Book Day! 2017 is an extra special year, as it’s the 20th anniversary of the day dedicated to the excitement of reading.
I’ve always loved books. I was that child who was constantly reading. At night, I used to wait until Mum and Dad went downstairs then sit by my door so I could read from the light in the hall (sorry if this is a surprise but I’m sure I wasn’t as sly as I thought I was). I read anything and everything. Some of my earliest memories are going to the library with my granda and him taking books out on his card for me. Now, whilst I don’t have as much time for reading as I would like I rarely go anywhere without my kindle and try to squeeze reading time in whenever I can.
I love World Book Day and that it exists, because reading has been such a huge and formative part of my life and it’s wonderful to see its importance being celebrated! I thought I’d share a few of my favourite books to mark the occasion. Here they are, in no particular order at all.
